I would agree there are use case for defining a content profile. A
specification that purports to define a content conformance regime should
define one or more content profiles.

I would agree there are use cases for signaling that a document adheres to
one or more content profiles, e.g., for validation processing, for
maintaining invariants in downstream transformations, etc.

This is not quite what is meant by a processor profile in TTML. In
particular, it does not signal what features are used, it signals which
features must be implemented by processor, which may be more or less than
what is used by a document.

Both use cases are legitimate: (1) signaling what features must be
supported in order to process a document, and (2) serving as a convenient
label (description) of a specific subset of features supported by a
processor.

There is more than one reasonable mapping from a content profile to a
processor profile, so some mapping will have to be selected as a default
and others will have to be specified within a document instance.
Alternatively, the document instance can explicitly signal the processor
profile removing the need to infer it. Indeed, in TTML1, one can only
signal a processor profile, and cannot signal a content profile.

In TTML1, 3 is all we have. TTML2 will add 1 and 2.
